HI, I soak my jars and can remove most of the labels, but there's always some sticky residue left I can't shift. How can I get rid of it?

WD40 will do it easily. Put the jars through the dishwasher afterwards, or wash them hot with plenty of bubbles and a good rinse.

There's some stuff called 'Sticky Stuff Remover' which really does what it says on the tin.

WD40. Followed by a wash with detergent.

WD40. I laughed in DH's face when he suggested it but 30 seconds later, all gone and no more laughter. He's right occasionally smile

Oil, any oil, sunflower, olive, anything you have.

Rub it on and leave for a while then it scrapes off easily.

Thanks! Off to try oil and WD40 if it doesn't work x x
